on the appropriations committee, that sequestration is unlivable. >> that being the defense industry. >> yes, mostly. on top of that, the next which takes spending to $967 billion almost comes exclusively out of defense. another $20 billion cut around january 15th strictly from defense budgets. so there's an appetite among the hawkish wing of the house republicans to just get rid of this. they realize that if they are going to get rid of this, they have to give in a little bit. >> weirdly, sequestration is now having the impact they believed it would to get a deal in the first place, untenable budget cuts. i think jonathan's point is really important. this is, if you're watching at home, this isn't the grand bargain. politics is the art of only the possible. the possible in this case is something very small. there is clearly no appetite for brinksmanship again. it is getting what they can get done. not getting into a bigger intractable fight that might shut down the government or cause really hard political pain on either side explaining to their base what they are getting but what they are giving u

. that threat hangs over them. >> these are different cuts than defense cuts which theoretically has that action looms larger over the republican party. >> i think nobody wants to do this except tea party people. very interesting senator patty murray supposed to be on vacation. she personally traveled to washington. she's meeting -- the senator, lofty one, they are working together, not talking about any kind of grand bargain. lots of people don't like the idea for those but they are trying to come up with an alternative to the really deeper sequester cuts and it's unbelievable they can't even agree on fees. okay. we're not talking about tax rate hikes that's off the table. we can't close loopholes. >> we're talking about auctioning broadband spectrum, higher fees on airport security and vacuuming up loose change jonathan capehart might have. >> there's a lot of it. >> there is a lot of change. i think part of the reason compromise seems so hard is that republicans have not are to ask themselves the tough questions about what they would do in terms of broader policy because they have been able t

violence self-defense when it was the most logical and yet deeply courageous thing to do. he had done hard time in prison and he had come out on outside showing us black people could take courageous stands and sur vooifg vif being on point as leader of a great movement and thrive on the other side. even though they embraced violence at one side as self-defense could embrace peace and unity and bringing people together as also in that moment the most logical and, again, most courageous thing you could possibly did. >> i'm going to open up to my friends in new york. eugene, you were talking before the break, independent of the man himself, the legacy what ben points out, the possibility this could happen in south africa, the man would be freed. that not only could he vote he would become president of the nation. in and of itself laid the foundation for where we are in america today. >> it made a lot of things that seemed impossible possible. it was so fast. 1990 he was out. 1994 he was president, in just four years. it was kind of a lightning thing. i remember the late '80s we were working t

offensive play, and i mean that in terms of offense/defense, we've seen from the white house in a long time. and for those of us who paid close attention two years ago, it's very much an echo of president obama's major vision for the country, is it not? >> no question about it. it's been his vision really throughout the time he's been in public life. i remember interviewing president obama about income inequality in the fall of 2007. what he was doing in this speech is making a broad argument for government action across the board, not just on things like the minimum wage, but also domestic investments and infrastructure and education, job training. also his health care law. he's always seen the aforfordab care act as one element of an agenda to give a foundation of stability and security economically under people as they try to get into the middle class. he was reiterating that argument today. as you said, the shift to a more offensive argument shows how key it was to get that website working by the december 1st deadline because that is something that allows the administration to shift and
